The Product includes:
· STL files
· Prusa 3MF files with complete settings
· Gcodes compatible with Original Prusa printers

We understand that everyone builds aircraft models in different scales, and it is not feasible for us to create a set of models for every scale. Therefore, you can adjust the size of the model according to your requirements.
To change the scale, modify the .3MF file by either increasing or decreasing the model size in percentage. The model is provided in a 1/8 scale.

Examples of scale changes:
To change to a 1/6 scale, increase the model size by 33.3%.
To change to a 1/10 scale, decrease the model size by 20%.

3D printable figure pilot
The pilot figurine sitting in the cockpit is one of the most important components of every RC airplane. It is crucial for the overall aesthetic impression, as nothing is worse than seeing a beautifully built model airplane spoiled by an unattractive or missing pilot figurine. However, many modelers consider this small detail to be insignificant. Nevertheless, we believe that it is a misconception, and therefore, we offer a wide selection of 3D printed pilot and crew models ranging from the 1st and 2nd World War eras to the modern era of aviation.


Preddy joined the Army Air Corps in 1941 and became a fighter pilot in the European Theater of Operations. He flew the P-47 Thunderbolt and was assigned to the 352nd Fighter Group. Preddy quickly made a name for himself as a skilled pilot and was soon promoted to the rank of captain.

Preddy’s most famous mission came on December 14, 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge. He and his wingman, Lieutenant Donald Bryan, were on patrol when they spotted a group of German fighters. Preddy and Bryan engaged the enemy, and Preddy shot down three German planes in just a few minutes. He then went on to shoot down two more planes before running out of ammunition. Preddy’s performance on that mission earned him the title of “Ace in a Day,” a distinction given to pilots who shoot down five or more enemy planes in a single day.

Preddy continued to fly missions until his tragic death on Christmas Day, 1944. He was leading a group of planes on a strafing mission when he was shot down by friendly fire. Preddy’s death was a huge blow to the 352nd Fighter Group and the U.S. Air Force, as he was one of their most talented pilots.

Despite his short career, George Preddy left an indelible mark on the history of aviation. He was credited with shooting down 26 enemy planes during his time in the Air Force, making him one of the top American aces of World War II. Preddy was posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the second-highest military honor, for his bravery and service during the war.

In conclusion, George Preddy was a remarkable pilot who served his country with distinction during World War II. His bravery and skill in the air made him one of the most respected pilots of the war, and his legacy lives on to this day.
